As many of you who are regular QVC customers know, lots of the guests and presenters have become friends over the years, simply because we work together so often and end up sharing many of each other’s high (and low) points in life that it would be hard not to end up hanging out with each other at some point.
The wonderful Marie Francoise and I have been working together for years at QVC and she is, quite honestly, one of the loveliest people you will ever meet. So it’s hardly a surprise that I would want to spend more time with her. She reached out to me last year when I was off work ill after my heart surgery and treated me to a gentle walk in the park and some lunch and a catch-up and it did my heart all kinds of good, on all kinds of levels.
So, we met up last week for a spot of brunch and baby Mia came along too. Mia was as good as gold and slept through our entire brunch and our catch up, and then just as we were finishing our chat woke up to say hello and pose for some pics. They say timing is everything and she certainly has it down to a fine art and she is only 6 months old! 6 months!
Where does the time go to? It seems like only yesterday Marie Francoise and myself were on air doing a Kipling show and I felt baby Mia kick in her mummy’s tummy live on air just as we were talking about her arriving. See, there’s that impeccable timing again!
Speaking of timing, my meet up with Marie Francoise couldn’t have been more fortuitously timed as I did happen to notice the rather gorgeous Kipling bag she was carrying and I asked her which one it was. Well, it turns out that it is the Aliza and it is a Today’s Special Value coming up on the 20th November, launching at 9pm on the 19th November.
It was in that moment that I had a spark of an idea. In all my time at QVC and in all my time writing blogs, I have only ever had one competition to win anything and it was for some Liz Earle perfume, naturally, as I am such a fragrance fan. By the way, Liz Earle have a gorgeous fragrance Big Deal this week on the Beauty Channel, definitely worth checking out. Remember all beauty items are still on £1.95 P&P.
Anyway, I went back to QVC Towers after my brunch and stroll along the river with MF and I asked if it would be possible to get my hands on an Aliz TSV to give away in a Kipling Competition (or should that be Kipling Kompetition?)
So here is your chance. Simply answer the question below in the comments, one comment per person, and one of you will be randomly selected to win this amazing bag. I will announce the winner after the TSV date. It’s a great prize that I know will be very popular with many of you.
Kipling Kompetition Question:
What animal appears on, or is attached to, almost all of Kipling’s products?
A) A monkey
B) A bear
C) A tiger
Best of luck.
Until next time,
